Being one of the geosites of the recently UNESCO-designated Bohol Island Global Geopark, Canawa Cold Spring is a potential recreational, educational, and research ecotourism destination in the province. Hence, a tree growing and spring clean-up activities were conducted along the periphery of the spring in celebration of the "World Wetlands Day".

Indigenous/native species were planted at the 20-meter easement zone around the spring. A collaborative action from DENR-CENRO Talibon through the partnerships of Bohol Provincial Environment Management Office (BPEMO); MLGU of Candijay, and BLGU of Canawa made this action possible.

The activity aims to enhance the natural beauty of the spring by sustaining and improving its biodiversity. As such, aimed to connect and be part of wetlands restoration for equal benefit of people and nature.
